Seizes "highly important" Pavements Icy In North and Western Areas Up to 10 Inches Of Snow Falls In South Dakota By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Minnesota's 1953 traffic death toll rose to 574 today with the death of a second man as a. re- sult of an accident on icy pave- ment near Virginia in the first storm of the winter. Andrew Tomasich Jr., Virginia, died in a hospital there from in- juries suffered Friday when the car in which he was riding skid- ded into a power pole. Mike Dajrccula, 30, Chicago, died late Friday from injuries in the same accident. A third member of their deer hunting party, John Capparelli, 28, Chicago, is in criti- cal condition. A fourth man, Jamei Ingratta, Chicago, was unhurt. In St. Paul, Frank Boniecki, 65, a resident there, was killed, and his 68-year-old sister, Katherine, critically hurt when their car col- lided with a truck at a city corner. Police said the Boniecki car struck a truck driven by Adrian Seiberlich, 35, who was not injured. The state death toll on the high- ways currently is 103 ahead of that for this date a year ago. 7 Inches of Snow Up to seven, inches of snow fell in northern and northwestern Min- nesota Friday and Friday night, hampering traffic and further snarling communications. Heaviest snow fell in the Moor- head area, with Crookston, Bemid- ji, International Falls and Detroit Lakes each reporting six inches, Fergus Falls five inches, Brecken- ridge and Mahnomen four inches and Brainerd one. All parts of Minnesota received precipitation, either snow or rain. Most precipitation, 1.45 inches, was recorded in Duluth. The Highway Department said all roads are open, but urged caution because of slipperiness in the snow areas. The Northwestern Bell Telephone Co., struggling to restore downed lines in southwestern Minnesota, reported a new trouble spot de- veloping in the Detroit Lakes- Wadena area. 3 Towns Isolated Service to three of 21 communi- ties isolated Friday has been re- sumed, but the company reported five other towns were isolated to- day.

The Army announced yesterday that, unless new information ap- pears by January, it will declare men listed as missing for more than a year as "presumed dead." The remaining Army miss- ing, unless they are found, will be declared dead one full year after their disappearance. The Air Force, with 671 listed as missing, said it will declare 170 presumed dead next month. The Marine Corps has 493 miss- ing and the Navy 78, but neither said they had any plans to declare any of them dead in the near future. The U.S. casualty total in Korea killed, wounded or miss- the same. It is a preliminary figure, however, and is being checked and ve-checked as new information gets to the Pentagon. The change in status from miss- ing to killed was foreshadowed in early October when the Defense Department said most of the miss- ing must eventually be presumed dead. The declaration of presumptive death is needed to comply with the Missing Persons act. This law expires next Jan. 31, but the De- fense Department is expected to ask for an extension so survivors of the missing and probably dead men may receive the benefits to which they are entitled. The Army has set forth informa- tion needed for the families and beneficiaries .of men who have been or will be declared dead. The regulations, which also apply to such survivors of all service- men, include: 1. When a survivor is notified that a serviceman has died as the result of combat, the beneficiary will be furnished an application form for the payment of a gratuity. This gratuity is equal to six months pay at the rate prevailing when the man was declared dead. 2. Survivors are entitled to what- ever portion of a missing man's pay that accumulates while he is missing and which has not been previously such as for allotments or savings bonds. 3. Immediately after a service- man is declared dead, the Veterans Administration will be notified. The Veterans Administration will then help survivors collect what French have withdrawn after de- stroying enemy arms and stores. This time, said Cogny, they would remain and shortly would be re- inforced by airborne troops and war supplies poured in through the captured airfield. The French claimed to have in- jflicted heavy casualties on the Red-commanded rebels. It was be- lieved the Reds had about one regiment of men around the town. Appleton Slayer Draws 14 Years APPLETON Harold Fraser, 46, found guilty of second degree murder in the slaying cf Mrs. Lil- lian Spmmers, 59, during an argu- ment in a tavern July 28, was sen- tenced today to 14-25 years in the state prison at Waupun. The sentence was ordered by Municipal Judge Oscar Schmiege. Sheriff Lyman Clark said Fraser would be taken to the prison later today to begin serving his sen- tence.

Snow which began in the Twin Cities about 7 a.m. stopped before 10 a.m. The Weather Bureau forecast colder in the wake of the snow, with a few snow flurries tonight in the northern part of the state. Partly cloudy and continued cold was forecast for Sunday. Light snow continued in the Aberdeen, Huron, Watertown and Mpbridge areas of South Dakota this morning, but visibility was considerably oetter than it was at the height of the storm. Indirectly, two deaths could be blamed on the storm. Fred Flow- ers, an Aberdeen horse trainer, collapsed and died Friday when he was rounding up horses in the swirling snow at Aberdeen. Death was attributed to a heart attack. At Watertown, Mrs. Charles C. Smith, 71, died early Friday of injuries she received when the car her husband was driving struck an icy spot and went out of control on U.S. SI near Watertown. The state highway patrol early this morning reported roads clear but slippery in some areas, Ten inches of snow was reported at Aberdeen.

Snow in North Dakota Eastern North Dakota commun- ities shoveled their way out of a layer of wet, slippery snow that ranged from two to six inches in the first big snow storm of the season.
